An Introduction to NRA/CMP Service Rifle Competition and Basic Marksmanship.
Service Rifles are the iron sighted and now scoped battle rifles that have been used by the US and
foreign military around the world. We will focus on the principles of shooting as they apply to Service
Rifles at known distance targets and CMP competition. The rifles most often used in competition are
the M-1 Garand, 1903 Springfield rifles, M1 carbines, M1A/M14 and AR-15 rifles. Many other iron
